Floristry Basics for Beginners from the Professionals at V DUMTSI.

Floristry is not just an art and craft, but also a means of expression that allows people to share emotions through the beauty of flowers. For those who are just starting their journey in this exciting world, we at V DUMTSI have prepared a guide on the basics of floristry.

Understanding the Basic Principles

The first and most important thing in floristry is to understand its key principles: balance, harmony, rhythm, emphasis, and unity. Balance requires arranging flowers in a way that they create visual stability. Harmony and unity ensure a sense of calm and completeness of the composition. Rhythm involves creating visual movement that guides the viewer's eyes, and emphasis is about using a focal point in the arrangement.

Choosing Flowers and Materials

Start by selecting flowers. For beginners, it's better to choose flowers that are easier to handle and last longer in freshness. Consider different types of roses, lilies, chrysanthemums, and irises. Don’t forget about greens and filler plants, which add volume and texture to your composition.

Basics of Arrangement

When arranging a bouquet or composition, it's important to consider size, shape, and color. Start with larger flowers, setting them as the base. Then add smaller flowers and greenery to fill space and create balance.

Cutting and Care Techniques

Learning how to properly cut and care for flowers is a key skill in floristry. Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle to ensure maximum water absorption. Use a clean cutting tool to prevent infections.

Practice and Experimentation

The best way to learn is through practice. Experiment with different styles and techniques. Try creating both symmetrical and asymmetrical compositions. Don’t be afraid to try new ideas.

Floristry is a path of creativity and continuous learning. Each composition is an opportunity to express yourself and bring joy to others. Remember, every bouquet created with love and attention is bound to be wonderful!"
